Trinity Place provides a safe place for up to six runaway and homeless youth, ages 7 to 17. The short-term shelter is open 24/7/365 and staffed with CARING case managers who provide support for youth and their families with the goal of family reunification or an alternative placement. The program also provides the family with referrals to community services and other helpful resources. Youth attend classes at their own schools (within Buncombe County) and are under 24-hour supervision. While in the program, youth participate in a variety of volunteer, social justice, and educational opportunities.
Things were so bad at home, I knew I had to get out of there. Trinity Place gave me a safe place to stay while I worked on fixing my problems with my family.
